The Citadel. On August 28 Joe Munson and Jim Parolini made the first ascent of this 7378-foot peak from 1½ miles below Royal Basin. Brush and scree were encountered to the low point on the ridge connecting with Greywolf Ridge. The ridge was followed south, where easy chimneys and slabs led to the summit. The ascent took 4½ hours.
